Perhaps a circular put out over the

a good deal of opposition that was
expressed previous to the voting did
not materialize on the ballots. The
mayor pointed out in tho circular
that the fact of passing the by-laws
would not raise the rate of taxation,

Sun Treatment For
Crippled Children
This illustration shows the new
method of treatment for crippled
children, which it is purposed to
follow in the new solarium which
will be erected this spring at Mill
Bay, Vancouver Island, and for
which the Women's Institute are
energetically raising funds all

New Awards for Pigs Raised

! Key City Lodge No. 42 and Maple
Leaf Rebekah Lodge No, 2(1, Independent Order of Oddfellows, have
set aside Wednesday, February 3rd,
for the celebration of "Reconsecra-
tion" or "Better Oddfellowshlp Day,"
and will hold an At Home social evening that night.
Reconsecration Day, by the proclamation Of the Grand Sire, is being
celebrated throughout the entire continent and wherever Oddfellows are
known. They are joining together
for this purpose to do all they can
to further the great work of their
organization. The Grand Sire, in
his proclamation letter to the Grand
Lodge executives in British Columbia, put forth an earnest appeal to
all members to take this opportunity
to exercise their versatility and ingenuity to make this day a great demonstration by Odd Fellows, Patriarchs and Rebekahs,
The local lodges are sparing no efforts to make the day a success in
Cranbrook. Committees have been
appointed to see that everything is
in readiness for one of the finest social evenings they have ever held.
Every Odd Fellow and Rebekah in
the district is urged to make a special
effort to attend this function, and
should any member wish to bring a
friend, provision will probably be
made for them.
Tik«i New  Position
Miss Ruby Glaser, who was a member of the school staff here till just
before Christmas, has taken the position of vice-principal of the Kelow-
na school from the beginning of the
j comber 1800, and was married about
thirteen years ago. Besides her husband who survives, there ore also
two half-sisters in Denver, another
in San Francisco, and a half-brother
in Denver. Mr. Joseph Pountney,
a brother of K. G. Pountney, and his
sou, are  expected  to  come to the
' city lo attend the funeral. The late
Mrs. I'ountney was a member of the
Baptist church here, and all those
wilb whom she had become acquaint-
ted In this city speak of her as an
earnest and seriously minded character.
The funeral will take place on
Thursday of this week, at 3 p.m.,

The slightly heavier frosts that
have been registered at nights recently have done a great deal towards providing better Ice at the
skating link, and the ice is being
well patronised now. In spite of
vigorous effort! made by the secretary of the Amateur Athletic Association, the ticket sale for skating
ha- only cached about half of last
your, and those who have so far refrained from taking out tickets
should bear in mind that there is a
probability that though the season
was late in opening, it may be correspondingly late in closing. It is
unfortunate from the standpoint of
the association that the sale of tickets should have dropped oh" in this
way. since they hnve been to much
additional expense in altering the
rink to give better satisfaction to
skaters anil hockey players alike, and
they seem likely to receive less revenue in return. They have also retained
an ice man all through the usual season, in a desperate eifort to keep the
ice after it had once been nu.de.
The management of the rink feel
that it is unfortunate that no band
music can be secured tins year for
the benefit of the skaters, especially
when most of the bandsmen who
were currying on lust year in the
baud arc still in town, though as un
organization it is not now functioning. The sum of $200 was paid out
last year for music nt the rink once
a week, and Ihe association would
no doubt he glad to pay a reasonable
sum again this year if the music wus
available, as it adds a great deal to
the pleasure of those on the ice, and
is always a popular innovation. How
about   it'.1
Rod   and  Gun   Ctub   Meeting
The nt tent ion of sportsmen all
over the district is drawn to the announcement made this week of the
annual meeting of the Cranbrook
District Rod and Gun Club, which
will take place on Tuesdiiy next,
January 20th, at the city hall. It
is hoped that those interested in
hunting und fishing in all its phases
will make it a point to attend, so as
to bring out an adequate discussion
of the points raised anil the different
matters which will be brought up
for consideration. Those who hnve
been carrying on the affairs of the
association do not feel that they have
been given adequate support in the
past, nnd sportsmen hnve only to consider what hns been accomplished
for their benefit to realize that the
request made for better support is
not an unreasonable one. It is hoped (hero Will also be a good delegation present from Kimberley, its
Nome matters relating to the St
Mary's Luke district are tn come up
for consideration.
For District
Many Indications That Mining Industry is Likely to
Come Back Strong
Any who remain skeptical as to
the place mining is going to occupy
in the activities of the district arc
likely soon to have their doubts set
at rest, if the present activity along
this -line continues. Negotiations
have been completed recently, and
others are pending, which will have
ati important bearing on this phase
of the development of the district,
and the Herald would gladly give the
details, except for the fact that in
doing so other negotiations which are
in progress might be prejudiced.
Rather than unwittingly be the
cause of precipitating any situation
lhat might militate against the culmination of further deals now under
negotiation, the Herald refrains from
going into details on the subject, but
can assure Mast Kootenay people that
steps being taken mean the introduction of new capital into the district, and actual development work
shortly, along sensible lines. Further
particulars are withheld at present,
but it is hoped that before many
days pass, the public will be able
to learn of the developments which
are taking place immediately, and
the carrying on, of which spells added prosperity for the Fast Kootenay
The >acred concert given by the
Women's Institute for the benefit of
the solarium for crippled childnen
held in the Star Theatre on Sunday
evening last was a great success, the
sum of eighty five dollars being realized. His Worship Mayor Robert-
occupied the chair and gave an address on the cause, pleading with the
Cranbrook people to do their very
best for such a worthy cause and
making a splendid suggestion that
it might he well to follow, of sending a crippled child from Cranbrook,
and raising means of supporting that
child, to bring it back to health.
The program, every number of
which was thoroughly enjoyed, was
as  follows:
Vocal solo .        ... Mrs. K. Patterson
Vocal solo        Mr. Austin McDonald
Duet   ....   Mrs.   Mcl'hcrson   and  Mrs.

Vocal solo   Mrs. Shankland

Violin solo  Mr. Padberg
Duet       Mrs. Coutts and Mr. Shankland.
During the taking of the collection
Mis. Alma Sands rendered appro-
priate music, also acting as accom-
panlest for leveral of the numbers.
Miss Ivy Bidder and Mrs. MacPher-
son assisted, and Mrs. F.dmondson
acted ns accompanist for Mr. Padberg. The president, Mrs. Norgrove,
at the close, thanked all those who
had helped in any way to make the
conceit n success. The wish of many
is that the Women's Institute will
at some future time arrange another
sacred conceit.
The Women's Institute wish to
thanks the following for their donations to the Crippled Children's
Sister Superior of St. Eugene Hospital    $5.00
Mr. A. B, Longman  $5.00
Mrs.  A.  Henry   91.00
The Institute will be pleased to
receive donations towards the building of the Seaside Sun Home for
Crippled Children at Mill Hay, Mala-
hat Beach, Vancouver island, where
Ihe children will be taught handicraft, bead work and casket weaving,
lo make pleasant the time they are
in casts of splints. Help us to help
them back to health. Sunshine and
proper treatment will do lots for the
little cripples in the solarium if you
will only help witb your donations.
Hockey is now one of the big St.
tractions at the rink, and some interesting games have been pulled
off, both among the ladies' and men's
teams which have been organized in
the city. Especially in the junior
games some good material is showing
up. The school children are getting
their innings on the rink in the noon
hour, when, under the supervision
of Miss Patterson of the Central
School statf, the boys and girls get
on the ice on alternate days for their
games, thus getting proper super.
vised practice.
Two good games are promised for
Thursday evening of this week, when
the ludies' teams, ths Canucks snd
the Blue Birds, will clash at seven
o'clock. The former will try to make
the feathers fly, while the latter will
endeavor to show that in the matter
of speed the title of their team is no
This game will be followed by
unothcr battle royal between those
rivals of old, the Cranbrook Juniors
und the Kimberley boys. Smarting
under their three reverses, the locals
are all set to reverse the order of
things, .and fully expect to break
into their winning streak on Thursday. It is hoped that good attendances will greet these games, when
.some fast hockey is sure to be seen.
The civic elections held in Fernie
lust Thursday resulted in almost a
clean sweep for the Irvine ticket.
The only seat they lost was on the
aldermanic list where Alderman Lees
was defeated for the sixth seat, which
was in doubt, McCallum and Rut-
ledge, of the opposition ticket, having polled a tie vote for this position.
Mayor J. S. Irvine was re-elected
by an overwhelming majority over
Alderman Wm. Dicken, in the first
mayoralty election held there for
many years, the vote being: Irvine,
330; Dicken, 133.
The vote for aldermen was as follows; Aiello, 252; Kerr, 246; Tully.

The "Father and Son" banquet to
be held in the Auditorium on Febru

During the last three years the
boys and girls uf Bast Kootenay district have been very successful in
their Pig Club work and the interest
that has been shown in this work by
the boys and girls themselves is
largely responsible fur them being
placed at the top of the clubs of
the province in two out of three
In order to have the same enthusiasm shown in I wit! it was thought
that some new classes should be arranged, and as the Boys' and Girls'
Club is in fair condition financially
the following class, with the following prize money will be open, not only
to boys and girs who are members
of the Cranbrook District Buys* and
Girls' Club, but to any owner of
sows  in   Kast  Kootenay.
Best litter of Yorkshire or Yorkshire grade pigs shown at the time
of the Cranbrook Boys' and Girls'
Pig Show, $60; $25; $16; $10.
The rules und regulations regarding this competition will be us follows:
(1) Entries must be made at the
Agricultural Office one month after
the farrowing time of the sow.
(2) The litter need not be all
raised by the exhibitor; that is to
say a fanner with a good litter of
pigs can arrange with boys and girls
through the district to raise one or
as many of these pigs as he wishes.
The boys and girls can enter these
pigs as he wishes. The boys and
girls can enter these for the Individual prizes in the Pig Club then they
will be shown as a group by the
breeder for the above prize money.
(3) The pigs will be judged from
the bacon hog standpoint, but size
of litter will be an important consideration.
(4) Pigs entered for this competition must be at least five months
old at time of show.
(5) Entries In this competition
must have been sired by a pure bred
Yorkshire boar.
Any further information required
can be obtained from the Agricultural Office.
This above competition is offered
with two aims in view; in'the first
place, it is hoped that every hog
breeder in the district who has a
good sow will take advantage of this
competition and anyone entering a
sow in this class should do all possible to raise every pig in the litter
as the loss of two or three pigs at
this time will seriously handicap the
litter in the competition in the fall.
Therefore it is to be expected that
the sows in the district will receive a
little better care at farrowing time,
which should help materially to cut
down the loss in the spring. Second,
anyone entering a litter in this class
should aim for first money and therefore give the litter particularly good
care from weaning time up until the
date of the competition. This should
increase the number of pigs in the
district next fall and also produce
pigs of better quality. When it is
considered that in 1024 the
province of British Columbia purchased 142,618 hogs for home consumption and in the year marketed
only 7, 561 hogs that had been raised in British Columbia, or in other
words, purchased 04.99S of the hogs
consumed in the province, it can be
seen there is room for considerable increased production in this
The following figures show the
number of cars per eight hour day
for a period of five months using the
Interprovincial Highway from Crow's
Nest to Wardner, and from Wardner
to Canal Flats over the Kootenay-
Columbia river road, part of which
is a link with the Bunff-Windermere
As the count only covers a period
of eight hours per day, it would be
fair to add from one quarter to one-
third to the following figures for
cars travelling in the 16 hour period,

have been reduced to two had ihe Conservative
forces not been depleted by sickness, indicates just
how uncomfortable the position of the government
is, and its total insecurity. On the fourteen points
in the platform of the Progressives, by which 11 was
indicated that the third partj was onl lo support
the highest bidder, the government practically
capitulated to them, while Mr. Meighcn maintained
that his speeches on record indicated his policy on
those questions. Nothing could indicate, more fully
the disparity in the standards of political morality
actuating the two major parties. All the promises
made by the government — bribes in everything
but name — brought them a narrow majority only,
and it is thus made dear lhat as the government
asked for the music, they must dance to the tune,
and the country will have to pay the piper. The
sweets of office must be dear indeed when Ihey can
be considered worth such a sacrifice, and it is 110
wonder that Liberal journals all over the country,
now that the insecurity of the premier's position
is made clear, are demanding that he live up to his
word and get a clear majority or resign.
' The announcement of the premier's sudden
espousal of the cause of the west, seen in his decision
to run in a Saskatchewan scat, shows a further determination to court the support ot the Progressives. Perhaps it would be unkind to suggest thai
the reason the premier chose Prince Albert was thai
in the last election it showed a clear majority over
Conservative and Progressive as well, but then' is
room for lhat conclusion aKo. Whether he will be
opposed or not has not yet been decided.
•    ♦**.'
JOURNALISM has now arrived at a new stage
in its history. A Halifax divine recently deplored from the pulpit thai in the catalogue ol
prayers ii was customary to engage in referring to those who had a pari in the guidance of the
destinies of the people, there was no mention made
of journalists, especially newspapermen. In stating
that those who make their living by recording the
events in human progress were especially ill need
of the guidance of providence, this divine did not
mean that they had sunk so low as to be especially
in need of redemption. Thai would indeed be a
sad libel on a class, who, if they be no better than
any other workers, either by hand or brain, are
certainly much too busy to decline into the mire ol
lowered standards or to wallow in the gratification
of base ambitions. The natural keenness of the
born newspaperman gives him a sharp introspection
into the character of those with win.in he comes in
contact, and many a community idol would be found
to have feel of clay if vindictiveness was not ruled
out of the average journalist's code of ethics.
Humanity at close range is nol always what it appears from a distance, and il is a wonder, with this
so forcibly and so frequently brought to the newspaperman's experience, that journalistic standards
are as high as they are.
The idea of the minister was further elucidated when he said that he felt that there should he a
far closer association of those who in the communities appear to stand for upright moral prinicpals, and
Ihe newspapers, which take the same, stand, and lhat
therefore there should be a far more sympathetic
feeling on the part of the churches for the newspaper-. Feeling thai they were both working towards
the same end. thi- divine therefore reached the
sensible conclusion that if the mission of the newspapers was 10 be kept on as lofty a plane as these
unsettled times called for. they were just as much in
need of assistance and inspiration as the church
This at least ought to lead the churches to
ascertain whether they are as sympathetic towards
ihe newspapers as they might he. viewing the matter in this light.
landsome souvenir volume, reminiscent of the
stressful days of tin' war. has just come to
hand in ihe form of the War Memorials number of
Ihe Municipal Review. As its name implies, il is
devoted to a presentation of the memorials which
have been erected all over the country to the fallen
in the world war of 1914-1K. It is well gotten up.
and carefully prepared, and illustrates in what a
variety of ways the memory of ihe soldiers who
paid ihe supreme sacrifice has been honored.
and died for their country and their principles. In
the majority of eases the various communities ex-
pressed their patriotic impulses in this cause hy the
erection of monuments of various types, but many
other forms of memorials are shown, including
memorial halls, clock towers, fountains, gardens
and parks, while corporations made use of tablets
of various (onus. It all goes lo show that however
transitory the flag-waving impulses of the populace
niav be. "they live for evermore." so far as those
whose names are graven into the memorials are
concerned. Every province, and every part of the
country, rural and urban, is represented in the volume, bin there are two notable omissions which
readily come lo mind in looking over the volume.
1 hie is the memorial erected here, which stands in
ihe G.W.V.A. grounds and compares very fav-
ably with what has been done in other places comparable in size lo Cranbrook. The other notable
omission is the plaque memorials erected by the
Canadian Rank of Commerce in its branches, a
handsome specimen of which, done in bronze, hangs
nn the wall of the branch in this city.
Nevertheless, as a matter of historical record.
Ihe volume even without these worthy additions,
will form an interesting addition to the library of
post-war literature.
The various memorials arc depicted in clear
illustrations, and included in the book are reprodltc
lions of some of the most celebrated orders of
General Currie to the Canadian Army issued in re
ferenee to some of the big events of the war.

The result of the division nt Ottawa points to
another general election this year. A majority of three,
which would have been cut to two if an ailing Conservative had been able to vote, is not enough to justify the
government in attempting to carry on longer than the
present session without seeking the approval of the electorate. Not is it enough to justify any attempt to pass
highly contentious legislation. The only possible course,
in the light of yesterday's demonstration of the attitude
of the house, would seem to be a brief session marked
by measures vitally necessary to the country, and an appeal to ihe electors In the late spring or early summer.—

Madame Butterfly Storms Heart 0* London
Madame Butterfly has created a sensation in London.
Gathering in large groups, the women of London
town, by word and gesture, paid homage to this Canadian
beauty, so sweet, soft una Blender in her leafy gown;
bringing tu the foggy English metropolis a frank, breety
atmosphere of the great outdoors where aha grew to be a
beautiful rose; where the Apostle of the W'ii.ds became
enamoured with her charm and whipped up tho WihI.
Winds to endow her with a fairy rose complexion; where
the silvery dew, falling aoftly in the long nights, udded to
the vitality of her gracloun form mid brought, about (he
radiant, sparkling personality which has attracted such
cumpl.met.tury   utteiitinn.
Madame Butterfly was sent to Sir George McLaren
Brown, European General Manager of the Canadian
Pacific Railways at London, together with other Canadian roses such as the Premier, Hoosicr end American
Beauty, nnd arrived in perfect condition, beautiful and
fresh despite the long sea voyage across the Atlantic.
The flowers were grown lute in November at Brampton, Ontario, and were exhibited in the windows of the
Canadian Pacific Railway office in Trafalgar Square in
London as an indication of what Canada can produce
in tlic way of blooms. They are a splendid addition to
the consignment of peonies thut went over to London
earlier in the veiir.

last Monday evening in the Lumber-

A new First Aid room has recently been completed, which will lie
used in the future instead of the old
one, which has been converted into
an annex for the post office. The
new room forms part of the steam-

very recently in white in the interior.
Cupboards for the various supplies
have also been installed. It is in a

make their home in Lumberton; Mrs.
Henson and daughter, Phyllis, arrived on Friday afternoon.
A most successfid meeting of the
Lumberton Club was held on Wednesday eveninp of last week in the
Lumberton Hall. The early part of
"the program consisted of playing
cards, seven tables of whist being in
play. Refreshments were served after the cards had been completed. A
delightful program had been prepared by the committee which is in
charge of the meetings for the current month. The following program
was rendered: piano solo, Miss Thol-
ma Bartle, of Cranbrook; song, "Hot
Tomale Molly," Les DwcIIey; community singing; song, "Sunrise and
You," Miss Francis Trasler; community singing; song, "She Must Be
a Wonderful Girl," Les Dwelleyj
community singing. Misses Thelma
Bartle and Marguerite Trusler accompanied at the piano. AH of the
numbers were very well rendered,
and encores were called for in every
case. The remainder of the evening
was spent in dancing, music for
which was provided by Miss Thelma
Bartle and Messrs. Harvey and Harold Piper. This meeting was the
most enthusiastic gathering which
has been held in the new year, and
it is hoped that all those who turned
out last Wednesday will continue to
come out and be present at the meetings held on every Wednesday evening.

visiting friends and relatives.
In the best hockey game of the
season played on the Kimberley
link, the Kimberley Elks' team defeated Ihe Cranbrook All-Stars on
Thursday evening, in the second of
the Inter-city games. From start to
finish the game was a pleasure to
watch, the teams being very evenly

There were only a few penalties called, these being for minor offences.
In tiie first; period Knickerbocker
made the only tally for Kimberley.
The second period started with a
bombardment of the Cranbrook goal,
Finley saving ten times in five minutes. Finally Mellor scored on a
nice sail- There was some great
hockey played in this period.
In the third period, Lewis, after
some good work by Cranbrook, scored with a clean shot from the side.
Two minutes lat'*r Mellor and Gough
showered Finley's goal, Gough finally notching another point. A
little later Lewis from the side shot
the puck, hnT it hit the post, and the
gotd was not allowed at the time,
hut was later agreed to by the managers of the teams. With a minute
to go, Mellor from a solo play scored
Kimberley's fourth goal, making the
final score 4 to 2.
Alt the players are to be congratulated on the excellent game they put
up. Peever made a good referee.
The teams were as follows:
Kimberley—Livingstone, Handley,
Morrison, Ii. Knickerbocker, A.

Mrs. O'Leary lifted her always
heavy and mostly always weary body
out of the chair in surprise when she
saw the stranger .Tim was bringing'
toward  her.
"Mr. Bramley sent me here," said
Caroline after introducing herself
in a shyly smiling manner that found
a warm reflection in Mrs. O'Lenry's
broad face and shrewdly practiced
eyes. "He thought you could give
me room and board. I stayed last
night at the Commercial because—"
"You poor child in that place! Of

—and gladly—Ha-a-a-y, took here,
Jimmy boy, you'll have no eyes left
for the sorting of your mail, and be
late in the bargain, if you stand there
staring so. Co on with you, now—"
Startled as a .-.mall boy caught
stealing doughnuts, Jim blushed and
stammered, the more so because Caroline bent a friendly, grateful glance
upon him. "I'll relieve you of my
suitcase," she nodded, "and thank
you very much.''
Jim surrendered it to Mrs. O'Leary, Who with motherly domination
refused lo let Caroline touch it.
.Still Jim lingered, until Mis. O'Leary
last read the plea in his eyes
aright—and introduced him to Caroline.    No one, meanwhile, had been
paying any attention to Bobby,
etflects   of  this   non-surveillanee   of
natural rascality was made apparent
with startling abruptness when a wil
and gleeful whoop and a jerk  tha
knocked Jim and Caroline  together
announced the successful consummation of a stunt which he had been
slyly   preparing   for   some   minutes;
he had cast the big loop of his cow
boy play-lasso over his Dad and thi'
strange girl,  and  was  now  backing
away on his heels at the end of th-'
tightened rope, chortling like a mischievous terrier.
When Jim took hold of Caroline':'
arms to steady her as she toppled
against him, he felt a dazzling sense
of unreality, as though he were
touching the shudowy ami uncanny
substance of a beautiful dream. He
regretted Mrs. O'Leary's efficiency
in rescuing them from their tight!
and awkward predicament. The irate
widow, shook a threatening rope's
end at Bobby, who merely scuttled
t of reach and yelled:
"Why are you looking at that
lady so funny, Daddy?"
Thereby winning for himself the
fun of a grim chase by Mrs. O'Leary!
—while Jim departed in Ted-faced
haste, and Caroline remained alone
on the field, smiling a moment, unsuccessful and out of breath—but
"The divil in that little one conies
from the inelegant example of his
'Daddy Bob,' I'm thinking. What
can you expect from a baby that was
taught lo stand on his head and given
sling shots to play with before he
was two years old?"
"Oh," said Caroline in sudden
light, "then that was the Jim Fowler
with whom Engineer Wilson lives?"
The same," said the Widow, "ami
they're thicker'n a pair of moths in i
a muff. In all me born days I never
seen men cotton to each other so—
I guess the person ain't living who
could come between them two. Why,
do you be knowing Bob Wilson already, Miss?" in some surprise.
"He—I—" Caroline was visibly
embarrassed. "He was pointed out

Some time ago the writer heard of
the dummy playing the hand,instead of
the declarer, and that the mistake was
not discovered until the completion of
the fourth trick. An even more astonishing error has just been brought to the
writer's attention. Z dealt and bid one
diamond, A bid two clubs and all
passed. For some unknown reason, A
got it into his head that Z had obtained
the final bid so led to the first trick.
What is still more remarkable, the other
players didn't notice the error and Z and this
proceeded to play the hand and with costly experiment
clubs as trumps. At the completion of
the sixth trick, one of the plarwf**
zed what had happened and called at-
tention to the error. The case was referred by telephone to a member of tha
card committee of a well-known club.
This player was noted for his sense of
humor and ruled that Z must continue
lo play the hand, but that for the remaining seven tricks, "diamonds" mutt
be trumps. Truly a most remarkable
situation and a truly humorous solution.

One of the surest wavs to win tricks
is by forcing discards. Your opponents
have to guess which card to let go and
as usual with guesses, they guess wrong
more often than right. On some hands,
however, it is possible to force discards
iu such a way that the opponents have
no defense. When such a play is pots.*
that: is, forced to discard winning cards.
Good players are always on the lookout for the "sciuecze" play and are well
pleased when they get a chance to work
it. Iu the following problem, Z had a
chance to "squeeze" both A and B on
the discard.

the lead. How can he win all five tricks against
leaves that were restirring in a cold
memory. The past was dead theBe
five yours and over; he was Bob Wilson now und forever more. It often
struck him that under his real name
he was a stranger to even himself;
he could not respond to the old name.
Socially, he was but five years old.
Timidly, but feeling that he Wftlk-
d on morally sound ice, Bob had
set out to capture his new und golden dream. And among the tactics
of his siege was a daily call at the
Widow O'Lenry's to meet Caroline
and walk down to the depot with
Unknown to Bob, for the simple
reason that the railway schedule had
evidently entered into a conspiracy
with Fate to keep its cards under
cover, Jim hud also buttled with
vualms of it different sort, finally
deciding that it was right and pro-
tier and u beautiful privilege for him
to center hopeful attentions upon
Cnrolino, Jim had believed through
the years that no one could ever take
a second and equal place in his heart;
but Time uses a quaint and gentle
sandpaper, anil when his human
frailties led him spellbound in the
glorious wake of the wonderful girl,
Jim justified himself on the ground
that if he should marry again it
would be for the sake of getting a
good stepmother for Bobby and not
because Caroline, or any other girl,
would—or could—replace his wife in
his heart. Caroline, though, was
worthy of unqualified inclusion for
her own sake.
A combination of traits and consideration joined the railroad schedule in  its odd conspiracy to keep
apart the two friends who had hitherto in nil things and in all ways had
no closed books to one another.   To
begin with there was Bob's natural
predilection for caution and secrecy,
developed through years of watchful
guardianship over his tongue and his
innermost cherished thoughts.    Even
to Jim, Bob had never confessed the
B | past; and now there was no reason
immediately   parade   something
that might be awkwardly stitched in-
thut  past, were   it   but   known.
Then there was Jim's sensitiveness;
he wanted to be sure of his emotional
justification   and  confident   in   his
ability to express it before confessing
to Bob, but own up he was determined to do just as soon as he was
sure   of   himself—and   her.       But
above  all  there  was the third  and
most  potent  complication, the railroad  schedule's part—widely  divergent hours of work that gave no time
or opportunities for confidences, or
for those serene  moments in which
secrets could be led  up to  and revealed.    Going out on the Limited
.Mail at night, Jim was away all day
every second day, laying up at the
next   divisional   headquarters   four
hundred  miles  west.    He would rer
turn   then   on   the  following night,
shortly after midnight.    That gave
him   one  full  day  at  home,  every
other day; still, as he slept late on
these mornings, he did not customarily see  Bob  unless the latter was
on a lax schedule.   The railroad schedule's  entry  into  Fate's conspiracy
wns  in an  unprecedented   rush   of
work   for  Bob  that  had  kept  him
away on  long runs and had given
him much overtime in the few days
since Caroline's lunchroom debut.
But wise Mrs. O'Leary hnd been
observing the lay of the land and
the direction of the wind; for Caroline's hours were such that while Bob
saw her every morning, Jim encountered her in the early evenings when
he stopped by to leave Bobby. This
worked a double advantage for Bob,
who also saw Caroline when he called
for Bobby on his way home from
work. Mrs. O'Leary had seen that
Caroline's interest was in Bob, hot
in Jim; and in Bobby, but not in his
father. She had seen, too, that Jim
was mistaking Caroline's interest in
Bobby for circumlocutory interest in
himself. And the good Widow furtively trembled in suspense and tre-
pidation ns she witnessed the unwitting rivalry of the sworn friends,
Bob and Jim, for the innocent and
unsuspecting Eve.
One morning, when Cnroline was
no longer the town's ninc-day-won-
der, Bob wus guy with the plans of
youth and romance as he walked
proudly and brightly to the stution
with Caroline, whose duties required
her to be on hund ut 0.30 a.m.—
the ham and eggs shift—but gave
her the late afternoon and all of
every evening off.   Furthermore, one
day a week she hnd a whole holidoy
tomorrow was such a day, she had
just told Bob.
"Listen, Caroline, I've put in n
barrel of overtime lately, and I'm
tired enough to feel justified in asking for n day off. What do you say
if we hnve a picnic tomorrow—lunch
with pickles and paper napkins and
all that sort of thing in the pine
groves on Starling Hill?"
"Oh, I'd love to, Bob!" *
".—it's a cool place and we can
walk among the daisies or loaf on
the clilT and watch the clouds sal)
"Poet!" she charged.
"—and hold hands, and
"So, the truth will out—horrid
man I" mockingly.
Bob wilted under her playful glare,
cloaking the eager twinkle in his eyes
with smug contrlteness.
"Well—" she continued mischievously, "I'll think it over, but if we
go I guess we'd better take Bobby
along to keep me company while you

Is always a difficult task, and Wednesday last was liu exception, when

many attend, and at) were well repaid for their effort.
Following the regular meeting of
the   lodge,   lit   which    the    initiation
ceremony was put on for the benefit
of u number of candidates, the open
session was commenced, with Dr.
Km ledge in the chair. Tho flnst
speaker was Principal V. Z. Manning, who in the short time of ten
minutes which he was allotted gave
a very concise and most interesting
account of the early history of British Columbia, featuring principally
the first explorers of the province
and the countries in whose names
various parts of it were held from
time to time. Using a largo colored
map, particularly interesting was h
short narrative of the work of 11
Kenzie, Praser and Thompson in col
nectlon with the early acquisition
of the province by Britain. Following Mr. Manning's address came possibly the most interesting event of
the evening when a number of simon-
pure native sons of Canada, from
the St. Eugene Mission, favored the
assembly with some of their dances
those present, numbering about 160,
following with interest every step of
tin- red men as they executed their
various dunces, bedecked in the full
regalia of white buckskin, feathers,
furs, beads, bells and other adornments. The red leather dance and
the snake dunce were among those
executed. Loud and long were the
applauses given the men from the
Mission, who were present through
the good office of one of the committee. Mr. Fred Ryckman, and seemed
in enjoy entertaining the company
who though like themselves were
mostly native born, could date their
Canadian ancestors a good manj
years further back.
The next item was a selection by
the orchestra which was listened to
with   appreciation.
Harry Ports, who has the honor
of being the first white boy born in
Cranbrook, was next called upon,
and escorted by n guard of honor,
came forward to receive an award
from the chairman. He was quite
equal to the occasion and suitably
Mr. Austin McDonald next favored
with two well rendered vocal selections.
In his resume of the natural resources of British Columbia, Mr. C.
II. Ward was but able to touch on j
Itfl wonderful possibilities, and
narrated the great record of
the province, the birthplace or the
land of adoption of most of those
present. As Mr. Ward put it, it was
the natural resources that hud
brought and was holding most people here. After a brief description
of the topographical and climatic
features of B.C., Mr. Ward made a
division of the province into the
three main divisions of agriculture.
forestry and mining, giving figures
to show to what extent each contributed to the wealth of the province,
both actual and potential.
The subject covered by Mr. Fred
Ryckman, the history of Fast Kootenay, and the game thereof, waft
given in a very creditable manner.
and like the other papers read, it
Would be well worthy of publishing
In full. This paper dealt briefly
with the advent of Thompson and
others who figured prominently in
the early events of this part of the
province. To many it was most interesting, linking as it did the past
and the present, through the mention
of men who though now passed away,
were still familiar The great gold
production of Wild Horse and other
creeks, though of more or less recent
date, seem like a fairy talc. Bob
Doer, Mike Philips, R. I.. T. Cal-
braith and Col, Steeele were among
those mentioned in connction with
the history.
Refreshments, constituting the
next number, were thoroughly enjoyed, a number of the Native Sons assisting iu the serving of the coffee
and other good things which mine
hosts, the Rudcliffc brothers of the

team distinguished themselves on
Wednesday evening, when in a game
with the All Star team of Fernie,
they emerged victorious with a score
of ;J to 2. The game was fast from
start to finish and those who witness
ed it claim it was one of the best
ever played in the coal city. Morton,
playing for Kimberley, had the mi;
fortune to have a rib broken during
the game. This team has beaten the
Cranbrook Junior 3 times and play?
again to-night at the Arena rink.
The death took place at the hos
pital on Sunday last of Ole Iverson
of Wycliffe, after an illness of some
time. He was apparently between
fifty-five and sixty years of age
had not been in very good health for
a considerable time. It has not been
found possible to ascertain where his
relatives, if he had any, are located,
and the funeral was expected to take
place here on Thursday or Friday
of this week.
An interesting contribution, which
it is hoped will he made a weekly
feature of this puper, from "The
Man on the Street," wilt appear next
week. Dealing with national issue
that affect all the people, and yet are
given all too little consideration,
these articles will represent the disinterested views of "a man on the
treet," who may safely be taken t

According to a recent editorial in
the Nelson News, thai city, long hailed as the queen city of the Koote-
nnys, i^ in danger of losing its prestige. It admits that with Trail
claiming a population of six thousand, and Kimberley coming along
rapidly, Nelson will have to look to
its laurels. The News deplores tho
decline in some lines of industry in
its immediate district, particularly
iumbering. Another suggestion the
paper is making is that there should
be a conference this coming winter
of representatives from all the Kootenay towns and cities to discuss the
most effective means to be adopted
of advertising the advantages of this
part of the province.
In reference to a challenge by
Nick Bozlnls, Greek wrestler, well

met. George Anton, wrestling pro-
motor, of Cranbrook, and formerly
manager for Bozlnls, has accepted
the terms of Arthur. Mr. Anton
in announcing his agreement to the
terms laid down by Arthur, insists,
however, that the money be put up
before he brings Bozlnls back to the
Kootenays. This would he a match
thai would undoubtedly rouse a good
ileal of interest among sporting fans
of the district. Bozlnls is at present in the eastern States.
